Texas death metal band Malignant Altar appears to have broken up. The band is currently listed as "Inactive" on Metal Archives, their Instagram is now deleted, and Twitter is generally not thrilled. Which neither am I personally, because man – Malignant Altar was fucking good.
Malignant Altar has not issued a statement yet, but their final output (so far) is the upcoming Gosudar split due out December 16. Malignant Altar existed between 2018 and 2022, and I very strongly encourage you all to listen to their now-only full-length album Realms Of Exquisite Morbidity. It's incredible and it really seemed like the band had a spot in the upper echelon on modern death metal.
